X.Org-related Workshop and Meeting Funding
One of the explicit goals of the X.Org Foundation is to fund work that helps to advance the development of the X.Org project, and of X and related open source projects in general. As such, the X.Org Foundation Board explicitly invites proposals to fund such workshops. A good proposal will contain a target date, a reasonably accurate budget, and a description of the event that emphasizes why it will benefit X-related work. Note that the Board is more than willing to approve funding for events, such as the recent Video Hackfest, that are not directly about work on the core X.Org software base.
To apply for funding for your workshop or meeting, please email your proposal to board AT foundation DOT x DOT org, or contact any Board member for feedback and help.
